I was a serial entrepreneur for 20 years. It seemed I “had it all”. But something started gnawing at my soul. There was something I knew I wanted to do more. Something I felt was my life’s greatest calling…
I grew up in a good neighborhood in Salt Lake City, but my family didn’t have much money. We weren’t starving by any means, but as a kid, I didn’t have anything just handed to me so I worked a lot. At 10 years old, I was selling cold sodas to hot thirsty golfers between the 6th and 7th hole on the golf course. At 14, I was a dishwasher and busboy. Then on to mowing lawns with my little brother, 33 per week. The summer before my senior year, I was doing grueling construction work for $5/hr. Hard work is how I got the things I wanted.

During the first decade of his career, he became a top producer in selling high-ticket automotive, education, financial, consulting, and coaching products. Mike spent the next 20 years becoming a thriving entrepreneur by starting, building and selling a number of 7 & 8-figure businesses in a variety of niche markets – generating over $150 Million in combined revenue. His companies have been seen on CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News as well as in Entrepreneur, Inc., Small Business Opportunities, Los Angeles Times, The Dallas Morning News, Home Business, and The New York Times.
All of this was accomplished while raising four children, voluntarily serving in his church & community on a regular basis, and maintaining a healthy, balanced and abundant life.
Having personally trained thousands of business people throughout his career, Mike’s passion is helping other entrepreneurs leverage their gifts, scale their business, and attain uncommon freedom, life-balance & TRUE fulfillment in the process.
